how do you copy a table from one confluence page to another?

Hi Guys how do you copy a table from one confluence page to another?

I've tried copying it to word and then to the other confluence page - that didnt work. I have also tried copying one line of the table at a time - that works but then the table is broken up into different rows :(

While edting,  select inside the table from one corner to the oposite one, it should work.

The arrow represents the mouse movement.

Thanks, this works well for me!

Hi ,

Go to source page.

Without editing the page. copy the entire table with headers.

and paste on new destination page.

I tried the same , the output is like the below.

my version is the new confluence were the tables dont display like the above tables. If you select the table it puts a boarder around it and if you click the top left corner you can select and copy the table.

I can copy the table into word but not to another confluence page

add dummy text above and below the table, copy (ctrl+c) the text and the table, paste

(ctrl + v), then remove the dummy text from around the pasted table.

kindly accept the answer if it resolves your issue!!

it doesnt matter if i use "ctrl v", "ctrl c" or right click copy or paste it still doesnt copy the table over.

yes it doesn't matter if you use "ctrl v", "ctrl c" or right click copy or paste. if you have the texts around the table then it will work.

Hi Sandesh, thanks, I tried that too (put a row of x's at the beginning and end) sadly it didn't help either :( 

I also tried doing it in firefox instead of chrome - that didnt help either

@Sandesh Shetty it worked! Thank you!
